English School:
The Allied Forces - a commemorative design for a stained glass window

Unmounted (ref: 3848)

Indistinctly signed

Pencil on paper, 70 7/8 x 23 5/8 in. (180 x 60 cm.)

Generally poor condition

The pilot  wears RAF flying kit - the figure next to him is a Polish Army officer as the PAF did not wear Konfederatka's (a square-topped cap). The cap top left looks like a US Navy sailor. Below is  Sikh.
Pencil sketches to the margins include caricatures of General de Gaule.
It is unknown if this usual design commission was realized.

We are grateful to Andrew Cormack FSA Keeper of Medals, Uniforms and Visual Arts, RAF Hendon, for assistance.
